[laughter] for the 60's and 70's. it was a very weak news organization by all accounts. let's be clear. abc does the weakest of the networks as well. if you recall, there were to nbc network and nbc had a spinoff because they had trust concerns. so letter golden sun started building up the entertainment part of abc and to some degree successfully in the 60's and 70's. he concluded the only way to really get to parity with cbs and nbc was to build a great news organization, not so much because he loved news, but because the local stations made most of their money, as they do today, off of their newscast. he needed to improve. so he turned to abc sports, monday night football, while the world's ports and it said, you go over to ne

in paul ryan's home state of wisconsin. 51-43. a new quinnipiac/"new york times"/cbs news swing state poll shows president obama leading in ohio with likely voters 50 to 45. a tighter race in virginia. president obama at 49, mitt romney at 47, which is a statistical tie within the poll's 3% margin of error. and in florida that poll has president obama at 48 and mitt romney at 47. another statistical tie. tonight nate silver of the "new york times'" 538 blog forecasts that on november 6th president obama will win 300 electoral college votes and mitt romney will win 238 and president obama's chance of re-election ticked up tonight in nate silver's calculations to 78.4%. and finally, george w. bush has entered the presidential campaign. he did that today when he was dragged into it by his little brother in florida. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his entire strategy is to blame others. starting with my brother, of course. basically, he blames every possible thing, rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and define common gro
, made cbs colleague, jason jackson. the story of this book were exceptional and i that i will ask us present at 2002 it could connect the stories come from personalities together to weave together a book that could define this decade through leadership ones. so i called carol andersen. carol andersen wasserstein richard in a helicopter accident. i called her on the phone as i did all the mothers who go for the book who lost their sons and i said carol, i would like to type you about richard. >> are you selling t-shirts quite >> no, ma'am, i'm from the naval academy and i have an important project like to talk to you about. i don't want to cut to the naval academy. she was actually torn at the time. she was suffering about her son said she had reached out to buy the academy family and we can do better. i said ma'am, we're writing about to honor richard. our classmate. over a hundred books to make him 30 make third roommate to would like to hear your voice. do it for richard, do for those who served. a few weeks ago, after we sold out our first printing at the naval institute press, i
by -- magic mike. dvd on sale tomorrow. this one is on foreign policy. i am bob schaefer of cbs news. >> that is clearly the movie of the year. it seems like a natural fit for the debate. >> absolutely. it is the story of america. hot and sweaty hard body of america. >> i think you can agree, imogen. >> absolutely. >> and what are our foreign policies, but grinding up against other countries for more money. >> on that note from foreign policy to foreign polls. he is popular in france and with those who poop their pants. a pair of polls show obama is huge with foreigners and children. according to a bbc survey, if our election was held in other countries, the president would win in a landslide. that always sounds gedly. deadly. you are winning, but you would be dead because you are covered in mud. they questioned 21,000 people in 21 countries. a third preferred obama and 9% favored romney. that's 50 to 9. that's a difference of a lot. the prince was obama's strongest supporters fold by australians and his fellow kenyans. pakistan gave a slight edge to the mitster. nickelodeon said the
election day. the focus is still on critical swing states. polling from cbs news, "the new york times" and quinnipiac shows the president up by five points in ohio. that is unchanged from two weeks ago. in florida, just a single point separates the two candidates. the president had a nine-point lead in september. it's a similar story in virginia where mitt romney has closed the president's lead to within two points. are you really going to slurp your coffee? yes, you are. okay. when it comes to -- >> brutal. >> john heilemann. >> he isn't slurping his coffee. >> i just wondered. you're like my dad. he does that. >> when it comes to early voting, the president's ahead in both ohio and virginia. i tell you what, the economic outlook's a big reason why barack obama's maintaining this five-point lead. look at the same quinnipiac poll, these internals are brutal for mitt romney. any way you slice it. unless you believe that quinnipiac, one of the most accurate polling that's out there is cooking the books. and if you do, change channels because you're listening to the wrong channel. >> yes
. is that the gasolineup will poll? the other -- gallup poll? the other is the abc, cbs poll excuse me. never in modern presidential history has any president, 50% or over lost the election. >> dana: but never has obama been at 50% up to now. >> bob: he was up a few weeks ago. >> kimberly: the last poll is within the margin of error. >> bob: you can pick it apart but more people think he is doing a good job than you. do >> dana: that's for sure. >> kimberly: talk about something serious. your vote and making it count. >> bob: that's serious. >> kimberly: what is important is your vote counts. it's our duty and responseability to report this. there has been problems with early voting in north carolina and ohio where people are going to cast their vote, they are selecting -- sorry to tell you, bob -- mitt romney and vote logs for president barack obama. they had to take the machine and re-calibrate it. problem happening. when you go to vote, make certain and check. imagine the people that went to vote there before they didn't catch it, you are in a rush and late for work. you leave thinking you voted for
the reporters and jake tapper at abc and cbs written stories demanding answers and accountability from the obama administration. news busters notes those stories were banished to the internet. in the friday followup, two-fer tonight. wednesday, we learned the syrian government attributes the monster storm sandy to advanced technology developed by iran. now some cleric it's divine punishment. another we told you tha reverend joseph lowery believes all white people are going to hell. he did not apologize and said the comments were a joke. things are blown out of proportion due to his connection to president obama close to the election. >> i told a story that i have told 100 times. particularly with interracial audiences to lighten it up. we can get along. there is not that much difference in spite of our complexion. ♪ ♪ >> bret: four days and counting. we talked a lot about nergy in this presidential race. but what about coal specifically? 26 states have some kind of coal production. here they are. the big zest wyoming. second biggest is west virginia. it comes to battleground states and ther
for cbs sundays morning, mo rocca. >> i think first graders have an uncorrupted sense of fairness. that was real. it's a hot button issue colored pencils versus markers. >> eliot: and states right did not leap from their lips. >> that did not come up, but we're the only democracy at this point with this system when it was created it wasn't that uncommon but it's well past the sell-by date and i'm tired of the two sides of the issues. >> eliot: years ago when states were sovereign there was respecting the power. it's an idiotic power. i was around electorate once and i felt important. >> us an electorate once. >> eliot: when i was attorney general, governor, you get to hold those positions but fundamentally the electorate college is obsolete. there is an every to undo it. some lawyers came up with to have states pass laws. will that succeed? >> it's halfway there. enough states need to agree to it, that collectively equal 270 votes, the winning number to win the vote. it started with maryland, and if you google" national popular vote plan" and it should end it. >> eliot: and if cal
and has the momentum. today new quinnipiac/"new york times"/cbs polls has the president up five points in ohio and then they have florida and virginia in a dead heat with the president up by one point in florida and two points in virginia. then you look at the romney mini surge in the nonbattleground states, maybe romney does have some momentum. think minnesota, michigan and pennsylvania. but then you have to look at the campaign body language and it's hard not to con chewed that r romney's campaign is acting as if they believe they are behind at least when it comes to the state of ohio. for starters, the romney campaign likely would not be airing this controversial jeep ad if they believe they were winning. both chrysler and gm are firing back at romney. chrysler ceo said in a statement jeep assembly lines will remain in operation in the united states and will con sstitute th backbone of the grand. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. a gm spokesman told the detroit news, quote, we've clearly enter ed some parallel universe during the last few days, no amount of campaign po
are not falling for it in the state of ohio. >> as we look at the latest polling from cbs, the new york times and quinnipiac, find the majority of people in ohio, over 50%, is saying that the economy is getting better. obviously the governor's message is one that relies on economic frustration and the president is holding a firewall in ohio currently. we've talked before and you said that ohio is going to be delivered for the president. do you still feel confident about that? >> i do, thomas. even though we're feeling some of the residual effects of sandy and my heart and soul and prayers go out to our brothers and sisters on the east coast, we are holding for the president. the latest polls show 50 to 45% for early voters, 60 to 34% and among women, thank god almighty 55 to 40% because women in ohio understand it and they don't want to elect leaders that will treat them like second-class citizens, leaders that have a campaign that would say that rape is a form of conception. it makes absolutely no sense. ohio understands who's been standing by their side for the last four years. and just as
to parse all the categories. i think it is interesting that romney in the last cbs/times poll, polled better in terms of people who were more confident about handling the economy and the deficit which are the one and two areas of concern among likely voters. now, that's pretty interesting that the person who has the lead in those things is behind in the polls. and it shows i think the big problem for romney now is where will a new gust of momentum come from. he needs one. there's a jobs report on friday. that could conceivably be it. what if it's not. and now you have a kind of desperate lob grenade, try to find something that connects because the president -- >> peanut butter give. >> the president gets to engage on the campaign. he gets to be doing his job, to be a very serious person, going to see the damage in new jersey, seeing what he can do. it really is a big problem for romney right now. >> initially nothing for romney to do himself. i mean nobody cares what mitt romney thinks about the storm recovery in new jersey. it's very challenging position for him. >> what do we think
leap. i want to run a number that jumped out at me from the cbs/"the new york times" poll. in this poll, they asked ohio, florida and virginia voters do you think things in your state, the economic conditions in your state are getting better, worse or staying the same? you look at florida, 37-25 better. virginia 39-19 better. ohio, you have the unemployment rate lower than the national average. 52% better, 17% worse. pretty big difference there. is this just a case where the economic conditions in a particular state are kind of overriding national factors? >> i think that's possible. certainly the case of the state economy stronger than elsewhere and the auto bailout is a tangible example to look at the president saying that's something that made the economic conditions where i live better and not true elsewhere in the country but i will note that broadly speaking romney's performing worse in states where the economy is doing well and like in iowa and the unemployment rate is lower than it is in ohio so i think it's not just as simple of whether the economy is doing well and other facto
election night -- or maybe we should say election morning 12 years ago -- let's go back to cbs news's coverage of the race between george bush and al gore. >> let's point out what the television networks are using a pool of data and exit poll of permission and other ever mission have made some mistakes over the night, the big one meeting in florida, first calling it for al gore and then for george bush and calling it back. television and radio networks are not the only ones who had to take some calls. >> this is one that called it for bush. they came out with a new addition, they called it a nail biter. when it -- it was a hunch. when it happened to us, it was based on technology. it is kind of scary what we are basing this on tonight. >> they may yet be right to enter the case of the chicago tribune, and they were wrong but. it still could be right. they pulled a back. >> a denture fairness to our core, he was probably listening to us. >> he and his people. no doubt about it. florida's electoral votes, look at the map. the reason florida is and why it is because this state remains
" and cbs news shows president obama ahead 50-45 among likely voters in ohio, that is unchanged from last week. the race has gotten a lot closer in florida where support for governor romney is surging higher. the race there now a virtual tie, 48-47, five weeks ago the president was winning by nine. in virginia the president is leading by two points, 49-47. three weeks ago he was ahead by five. let's talk about these numbers with charlie hurt, a columnist for the washington times. so if you were one of these candidates, which would you rather be given the trend lines, charlie? >> i think that given the fact that all of these polls are closing which, by the way, is not very surprising the polls are closing at this point in the race, but they're all sort of closing in mitt romney's favor, i think i would rather be mitt romney at this exact moment. but, obviously, you know, when you look at polls such as ohio which is, you know, historically a must-win state for either candidate, you know, obama is still faring pretty well according to the polls. and i guess the big question is how much faith
romney when it comes to independent voters by 12 points and a cbs "new york times" poll that reflects the same numbers. a deficit for the president when it comes to independent voters. how does this work? michael barone is the senior political analyst and fox news contributor. i guess the theory is the republicans and democrats will be split and the independents will make the difference? and romney is winning with them? >> that's the theory. 2008 democratic party identifier outnumbered republicans 32 points. 2010 party identification was even. that's from exit poll data. if the parties are even in strength as when they are in 2004 and the 2010 off-year election then the independents are going to swing it because party identifier these days are strong partisans. you are getting 90-plus percentage of democrats for obama and 90% republicans voting for romney. weir we'll see something other than a 1% race in the presidential contest. megyn: if that's true why don't we see bigger numbers for mitt romney in states like ohio and iowa and these other critical states that may be required for h
schlessinger is the editor at large at cbs money watch.com. good to see you. thank you for joining us here to help us with this. you heard the candidates weigh in. how would you characterize today's reports, beyond what the rhetoric of what they say about it? >> first, let me say they're both sort of right. so each side has a point. but when you look at this report, i was so elated this morning, 171,000 is more jobs than we thought were going to be create the crea created. we thought there would be 125,000. you talked about the unemployment rate. let's discuss why it went up. it went up because we had a few more people, that re-entered the workforce, looking for jobs. that means they feel optimistic they can get a job. we have been talking about how people have been leaving the labor force, so we had some people come back into the labor force, that pushed the unemployment rate up by a tenth of a percent and another real positive, revisions to the previous two months totaled 84,000. we're averaging about 157,000 jobs a month this year. it is trending a little bit above last year. but the bo
have president obama and mitt romney on cbs the other day. the president was expressing his disappointment that he hasn't been able to change the tone. george w. bush ran he was going to change the tone. everyone is always going to change the tone. the question is mitt romney promising by partisanship of it like lucy promising charlie brown she won't pull football? [laughter] >> yes, i think it is. i think that he has to nod to that there is no evidence he would govern in of bipartisan way to read george w. bush that is not elected president in my opinion but did not get a majority of the votes -- [applause] he ran that we as a compassionate conservative and you would have expected him to govern as a moderate and realize he presided over a very deeply divided country and instead he was one of the most radical presidents we've ever had, so i expect the same thing from mitt romney who is actually talked who is espousing more radical right policies than george w. bush ever did. like nixon and ronald reagan in certain ways looks like a moderate in terms of education mitt romney
local so we can make sure that jobs are here that should be here. host: 1 story from cbs news said this had hit romney on china. it is challenging him and accusing him of outsourcing jobs. it rebuts his claims that he would stand up to host: is a volatile spot on him? is he week are in china? guest: the president has been extremely weak on china and the past four years have proven it. as far as outsourcing jobs, the president ever stimulus bonds outsourced thousands of american jobs and money that was borrowed against the american taxpayer was also outsourced. looking at fisker automotive, those jobs went overseas. this president has been a failure when it comes to making sure jobs stay in the united states and protecting us against currency manipulation. host: from iowa, mason city, independent. good morning. caller: there was a caller a few minutes ago from louisiana with a different guest talking about the campaign. basically, he said that they were laundering money coming from foreign countries going to the democrats. how come nobody is talking about the fiscal cliff? there was
. every single tv show that's based in new york city airing on nbc, abc and cbs and several cable networks have halted production since sunday including all of the late night comedy shows. over 20 shows in all. all braid way shows have been canceled until further notice. a couple of major movies also stopped because of the storm. >> bill: movie theatres, do they just shut down? >> a lot of movie theatres shut down too. people wouldn't go out. >> that's a good point. i didn't think about that. i didn't even think about trying to go out to a movie theatre yesterday. >> martin sheen an avid obama supporter had harsh words for mitt romney in a new interview with the huffing "the huffington post." he said romney is nothing but arrogant, a successful businessman who does not have a clue what 99% of the people are going through. on romney's debate performance sheen said mr. romney showed his rear end there using a different word. how stupid he is referring to the old phrase arrogance is ignorance matured. >> bill: wow.
the reporters for their questions and the cbs network. i very much appreciate it. look, this is a big election. and it's a big election for a number of reasons. but from my perspective as a montanaen one of the most important reasons is because we're back in 1912. we've come back to a time when appropriations can give unlimited amounts of money, secret money and influence the political structure of this country. and that's scary for a democracy. we've seen incredible sums of money come into this state this cycle since the citizens united decision money that has no transparency whatsoever. money that is being used to define me as something that i'm not because quite frankly they cannot beat the farmer from big sandy with the record that i have for veterans for sportsmen for women for education for tax policy for making sure that montana's rural perspective is front and center in washington, d.c. look, over the last six years i've had an incredible opportunity to work with some of the most incredible people in the world and they all live right in this state. when i first got appointed to the vet
to win the grand prize of two out -- $5,000. cb -- c-span's competition is open to students grades 6 through 12. find out more at studentca m.org. >> the u.s. house and senate and the federal government -- host: we are highlighting key battleground states of campaign 2012. today we put a spotlight on iowa. joining us from des moines is a senior political writer with the associated press, mike glover. what is the economy like in the iowa? guest: the economy is probably better than the rest of the country. it's not great, but we have not suffered the depths of the recession that some other parts of the country have. the economy is less of an issue than it is in many other places around. basically because the farm economy is pretty good this year. commodity prices are up as well as land prices. so there's not a lot of economic uncertainty. host: what are the top issues that iowa voters are thinking? guest: it depends on what group you are talking to. on the republican side, the topics they are talking about are the social issues. that's very important. it has driven republican politics
you're frustrated to watch the daily news. will broadcast medium abc, cbs, nbc, cnn, fox, any thing with 9/11 or terrorism always guilty before you are proven innocent and rush to judgment. the reporting is not in depth. the problem media faces with the original foreign correspondent. they will living there they come back with the real story. with the arabs spring it was the beginning of the revolution now it was a different story because now we use youtube or bad quality television. but it depends. you can still read fantastic stories and use the terrible reporting on stations like fox news. >> how would arab media of fact -- defect or handle the matters in media? i suspect americans to enjoy positioning the and it was before. why is that? the palestinian issue the front pages was day touching point* because of the support for israel so i see the criticism. president obama also helped the american administration in. something interesting, burning the american flag, you could see that in syria. or the chinese flags. have the iranians, russians, now being burned regular the. governme
schieffer of cbs news. the questions are mine, and i have not shared them with the candidates or their aides. the audience has taken a vow of silence -- no applause, no reaction of any kind except right now when we welcome president barack obama and governor mitt romney. gentlemen, your campaigns have agreed to certain rules and they are simple. they have asked me to divide the evening into segments. i'll pose a question at the beginning of each segment. you will each have two minutes to respond, and then we will have a general discussion until we move to the next segment. tonight's debate, as both of your know, comes on the 50th anniversary of the night that president kennedy told the world that the soviet union had installed nuclear missiles in cuba -- perhaps the closest we've ever come to nuclear war. and it is a sobering reminder that every president faces at some point an unexpected threat to our national security from abroad. so let's begin. the first segment is the challenge of a changing middle east and the new face of terrorism. i'm going to put this into two segments, so you'll ha
at -- by the way rude, did you know i just saw this over the weekend. the cbs poll that showed romney winning by a wide margin in the first poll. did you know that obama in the same poll won the third poll by an even larger margin. but you make a good point. as to how it was covered. with obama, it was covered like a disaster of epic proportions never before seen in politics. and it was not. you know. yes, he was not on his game. anybody can say that. this is -- as you said, you're describing romney in the third debate. he either agreed completely or threw out a word or two that looked like he looked things up on his smart phone. romney's sole plan seems to be he'll be there and not obama. no doubt america will seem stronger with a man named willard in charge. somebody did the graphic but everything he said but i'm white. >> yeah. that's pretty much it. and you know, i just want to go up to people that are thinking of voting for romney and going what if obama said i have a plan to fix the economy but i'm not going to tell
